taurus sign

Fast Summary:

Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, and is symbolized by the Bull, which symbolizes this signs steadfast and possessive manner. Taurus symbol or glyph represents the resolute and indomitable head of the bull. The Sun is in Taurus from around 20 April to around 21 May each year. Taurus is classified as being of the negative polarity (passive and receptive), of the earth element (practical, cautious and restrained) and of the fixed quality (intense, steadfast and resistant to change).

The Sign shows a productive, conservative and possessive attitude, with an urge towards organic relatedness, material security and sustenance. The characteristic Taurus type is productive, industrious, reliable and steadfast, with a marked need for material comfort and security. Taurus has tremendous powers of endurance and patience, and by nature conserves, withholds, and needs to possess. Taurus has a sound sense of material values, of art, beauty and harmony, as well as a love of good food, luxuries and comfort. Taurus has fixed ways and opinions and strong feelings generally. Taurus thought-processes usually follow accepted, reliable and predictable patterns, preferring to stick with the familiar and comfortable.

There is a danger of Taurus becoming too narrow-minded, disregarding the abstract or anything which can’t be sensed directly. They may also be unresponsive to things which dont conform to its perceived common sense value of the tried and trusted. There can also be a danger of Taurus measuring the worth of everything in exclusively material ways, and of being too concerned with money and possessions. Taurus may show love in exclusively material ways, often expecting the same in return, often being unresponsive to deeper emotions in life. Overly exaggerated use or unintegrated expression of the Taurus manner can cause one to be too possessive, grasping, self-indulgent, stubborn, resentful of contradiction, unoriginal, stuck in a rut and slavishly adherent to routine.

Physically, it rules the throat, neck, ears and thyroid gland. It can have a tendency for ear, nose, throat and neck disorders. Taurus is especially associated with, or “ruled” by, the planet Venus.

Taurus Zodiac Symbol

 

The Taurus zodiac symbol represents the strength and endurance of the bull. Just like the bull, many Taurus people have solid frames and robust health.

If you take a look at the Taurus zodiac symbol, you will see a circle with two horns sitting on top. The circle represents the very round face that you often see Taurus people have.

The perfect circle also represents the circle of life that all Taurus people instinctively understand. Taurus individuals quite often feel a very spiritual closeness to nature and Mother Earth within themselves.

Most people of this sign have a passionate love for animals and nature. In fact, youll often discover that a lot of Taurus individuals are zealous supporters of nature and wildlife preservation groups.

The horns on the Taurus zodiac symbol represent how in tune Taurus people are with their senses. They are very sensual people and are usually big lovers of massage, hugs, and physical touch in general.

The horns also symbolize how sensitive to noise a lot of Taurus people are therefore having peaceful surroundings is crucial to them. Due to their love of nature, many Taurus prefer to live in the countryside where they can get plenty of fresh air, sunshine, beautiful greenery, and peace and quiet all around them.

The Taurus zodiac symbol is very much like the bull. Once they get set in their ways, they become very resistant to change and can be incredibly stubborn. Imagine trying to push a bull off of a green patch of grass that hes grazing. Youd be in for quite the battle wouldnt you. Taurus people are just like that.

I’m sure you heard the popular phrase just like a bull in a china shop. Trust me, heed my words. Don’t try to change them or push them off their turf!

Ultimately, the highest truth for this sign is that great patience, inner strength, and endurance is their path for achieving solid gains in their lives slowly but surely thereby ensuring a tranquil inner peace.

Taurus Personality

Unlike Aries who is impulsive, Taureans never make snap decisions and they enjoy routine in their lives. Because they are ruled by the planet Venus they look for peace and harmony in their relationships. Taureans are also faithful and committed when in a relationship. Taureans are constant and it takes much to get them to anger but once they do they can become violent.

When Taurus gets involved with something they would much rather direct the action than be in the action. Taureans are not lazy people and because they are an earth sign they do well in any agricultural work. They are known for their practicality and responsibility and dislike change. Venus gives them a great appreciation of beauty and art. They stand fast and unwavering in their beliefs through difficult times. Taureans are very amorous and being creatures of routine are not given to experimenting sexually. Unlike Aquarians who fear commitment, Taureans like it and are very loyal.

Luxury and comfort and very important to the Taurean and they will work hard to attain this. To them wealth is security and stability and it is more important to them than any other sign in the zodiac.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

 

Astrobabe

Characteristically, a Taurus will be practical, extremely determined, and bull-headed (which should come as no surprise looking at the symbol of the zodiacal sign). They bear a strong sense of willpower, but may also be a loyal follower to a leader in whom they place their trust. They are stable, balanced, law-abiding people and enjoy peace rather than war. They have a sense of material values and physical possessions, a respect for property, and a fear of falling into debt.

A Taurus may display more practical rather than intellectual prowess, and will use this practicality in dealing with future situations. Their character is generally dependable, prudent, just, firm, and unshaken in the face of adversity. On rare occasions, a Taurus may be self-indulgent, rigid, argumentative, self-righteous, or even self-centered. If hurt too frequently, a Taurus may develop a sense of resentment towards the personalities which have caused them pain. If this type of Taurus begins to develop, they will require frequent ego-boosting in order to restore their morale. This is rarely the case, however, as it does take quite a bit of bruising to break through the thick skin of the Taurus.

A Taurus may prove to be quite the “artsy” person, as they seem to enjoy all things beautiful, including music. They also are prone to enjoying the “perks” of life – pleasure, comfort, luxury and good food and wine, and they may have to resist the temptation to over indulgence, leading to drunkenness, gross sensuality, and covetousness.

You know when you’re trying the wrong key in a door, and it just won’t turn? You can twist and wheedle all you want, but nothing’s going to make that door budge.

Well, that’s what it’s like arguing with a Taurus. Famously stubborn, Taurus provokes an uncanny frustration when challenged. What you don’t often hear, though, is how right they can be much of the time. Slow to anger, slow to make up their minds, Taureans believe what they do so fully because they’ve had time to consider their position. And consider it. And – well, you get the picture.

At the same time, however, you’ve got one of the most sensuous people you’ll ever meet. Taureans are basically suckers for the finer things in life: food, wine, perfumes, music — let’s face it. Maybe Taurus is so stubborn because they’re usually right about this stuff.

This is a very affectionate sign, and one with staying power. Don’t make them mad, though. Please. Don’t ever make them mad.

Biggest Insult: Why are you such a flake?

Quickest Way to Get Taurus into Bed: is an oxymoron. Make yourself all pretty. Wait a couple years.

Most Likely to: Be the person you call when you get hit by a car. Bail you out of jail. Sleep until noon. Stockpile fine wines in a kitchen cabinet for a rainy day.

Should Have Been Born: at Versailles.

To Make Taurus Forgive You: is as tricky as making Taurus do anything. Tell Taurus how right he or she was. Beg forgiveness for being so wrong. Wait a couple years.
